This gene is similar to a mouse gene that encodes a testis-specific protein containing a RING finger domain. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found. [provided by RefSeq, May 2010]
GeneCards Summary for RNF17 Gene
RNF17 (Ring Finger Protein 17) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include protein homodimerization activity and hydrolase activity, acting on ester bonds. An important paralog of this gene is TDRD6.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for RNF17 Gene
Seems to be involved in regulation of transcriptional activity of MYC. In vitro, inhibits DNA-binding activity of Mad-MAX heterodimers. Can recruit Mad transcriptional repressors (MXD1, MXD3, MXD4 and MXI1) to the cytoplasm. May be involved in spermiogenesis (By similarity).
